FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) - Students with Fort Wayne Community Schools who are eligible to receive a COVID-19 shot, will now have a chance to win $500.
Super Shot is partnering with Fort Wayne Community Schools to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to students at Super Shot’s clinic at 1515 Hobson Road.
According to organizers, students at North Side, Northrop, Snider, South Side and Wayne high schools who receive both doses of the vaccination by Aug. 6 will receive one entry to win.
The first dose must be administered by July 16, 2021, to meet the qualifying deadline.
Students receiving all other age-appropriate recommended immunizations at Super Shot by Aug. 6 are eligible for a second entry to win.
But what if your child didn't receive that vaccine through Super Shot? Don't worry, you can still enter the drawing at www.SuperShot.org. Entries must be submitted by Aug. 6, 2021.
“We want students to start the next school year protected from all vaccine-preventable diseases. We are concerned because there has been a great downturn in adolescent immunizations over the past year, and we hope this will encourage families to make getting caught up on vaccines a priority. Super Shot is able to provide the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine as well as all recommended immunizations when a student comes to our clinic.”Connie Heflin, Executive Director of Super Shot
One $500 prize will be awarded to a student at each FWCS high school (North Side, Northrop, Snider, South Side and Wayne). Winners will be announced at the start of the 2021-22 school year.
Walk-ins are welcome at the Super Shot clinic, as are appointments.
Students must show a valid school ID, and those younger than 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult with valid identification. Insurance is not required, but if a student is covered, health insurance information must be provided.
